A Tour Through A Guide Book of United States Coins, Part Six

By Q. David Bowers, Founder

This week I continue my series traveling through the 68th edition (2015) of A Guide Book of United States Coins. This familiar red-covered reference book has been published yearly since 1946 (the first issue having a 1947 cover date to preserve shelf life). At the forthcoming Whitman Coins & Collectibles Expo in Baltimore in the last week of March the 69th edition will be launched, after which it will be available from bookstores, coin dealers and hobby shops nationwide, as well as on the Whitman Publishing, LLC website.

To be sure it doesn’t including everything -- far from it.

I continue my commentary on A Guide Book of United States Coins, the familiar red-covered reference first marketed in 1946 (cover date of 1947 to preserve shelf life). Now it is in its 68th edition, with a cover date of 2015.  For many years I have maintained that by simply reading the text in the Guide Book a tremendous amount can be learned about American coinage.
